SnapCacklePop Music Awards - POP Album of the Year Nominations

As things heat up in discussing the winners of this year SCP Music awards,  we now can reveal the nominations for POP Album of the Year. Its been such a big year and sooo many great albums so the shortlist ended up with ten! This is going to be a challenge category to decide! Here are the nominations for POP Album of the Year...

Adele - 21
No one can deny that Adele has had an amazing year! 21 has been an international smash hit reaching number 1 in many countries around the world. With tracks like Rolling In The Deep, Set Fire To The Rain and Someone Like You the album is full of sad, reflective and heartfelt songs that show a maturity and depth and sung beautifully. The album is timeless.

Lady Gaga - Born This Way 
Born This Way was most probably one of the most promoted albums in recent years, with the Gaga marketing team creating deals with Starbucks, Google and Zynga’s Farmville to promote Mother Monsters new album. With an album full of Synth-driven new wave techno rock pop, it has certainly shown the world that Lady Gaga is one very talented lady.

Vanbot - Vanbot
Already nominated for best debut alum, the Swedish singer also gets a nod for Best Album of the year. Vanbot self-titled album is upbeat & bubbly modern pop that will make you wanna grab the denim jacket, dye ya hair white blonde, comb ya hair back BIG and grab ya stylised futuristic urban wardrobe and DANCE! Delivering us infectious upbeat and electro pop in tracks like Make Me Break Me and Lost Without You the album is pure gold from start to finish A must have for any pop lovers collection! Its pop at its best!

Katy Perry – Teenage Dream
Though originally released in 2010 Teenage Dream has been producing hits throughout 2011. If Katy release just one more single from the album, she will once again make pop history.

Britney Spears - Femme Fatale
Femme Fatale is BRILLIANT! On a similar level to Blackout (Still one of the most underrated albums ever – but don’t get us started!) THIS album is pure dance Ibiza pop! It seems to be injected full of electro dance beats! We are not sure if Britney has ever been to Ibiza, but its full of techno builds, house pianos and phat beats! With brilliant tracks as
Hold It Against Me, Till The World End and I Wanna Go are only just a sample of the many great tracks that are on this album and set the tone for the rest of the album.

Wynter Gordan – With The Music I Die
Like we said in the OMG! What an awesome debut Album Award Nominations With The Music I Die is a beautiful album full of twelve pop dance tracks including Dirty Talk, Till Death and Buy My Love. Great debut album from this new artist and worthy of the nomination

Clare Maquire – Light After Dark
Not heard of Clare Maquire? Well if you like Florence and the Machine, you’ll love Clare. Light After Dark is rich, deep, with a touch of ever so slightly Gothic, big voiced, big choruses and empowering lyrics.
First single Ain’t Nobody made top ten in the UK however even though having fantastic singles as The Last Dance and The Shield and The Sword, they haven’t had much chart success. Definitely an album is well worth a listen.

Will Young – Echoes

We feel in love with Will Young when he first won UK Pop Idol – after his first album, its was Will sophomore album Friday’s Child that made his move from Winner of talent contest to brilliant male artist – shift over 1.8million albums worldwide! From strength to strength and this year released his fifth record Echoes. A master piece from start to finish and filled with beautiful crafted tracks including Jealousy and Come On. Produced by Richard X this is definitely one of the pop albums of the year. Bravo Mr Will.

Gotye – Making Mirrors

Making Mirrors is the third album from Gotye and has definitely had everyone talking about it this year, with track Somebody I Used to Know going international being his breakthrough track to the world music market. With the single going 5 times platinum and his album going two time platinum, he has secured the highest selling single and album of 2011 in Australia.

Kelly Clarkson - Stronger
Though only recently released this album can not be missed off the shortlist. Stronger is the fifth studio album by American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson and is beautifully crafted from start to finish. With killer tracks like Mr Know It All and What Doesn't Kill You (Stronger) the album delivers Clarkson’s trademark pop-grunge tracks one after the other and is one of this year album highlights.
